UMUAHIA—THE Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has disowned one Okwudili, who was allegedly paraded by the Department of State Service, DSS, in Abia State, as IPOB factional leader.
The Biafran agitators said that the action of the DSS operatives was laughable as it showed that those behind the action did not do their jobs well.
According to them, the story of Okwudili is like the trending story that Naira notes were swallowed by a snake.
In a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, the organisation blamed those it said were being used as slaves by those in authority for the poor outing of the DSS, saying that IPOB supporters were the most disciplined on earth, and would therefore not engage in such charade by the Nigerian secret police.
The statement read, “We in the IPOB view as laughable the latest attempt by the Nigerian secret police, the DSS to rescue one of their sinking Igbo slaves… by seeking to deflate attention with the concocted, faceless, non-existent ‘Okwudili’ they claim is heading a ‘faction’ of IPOB.
“The DSS as a spy agency should work harder at infiltrating IPOB because all their efforts so far have failed miserably and will continue to fail because we are the most disciplined mass movement anywhere on earth today.
“Parading what is in effect a ghost as fake IPOB leader to give the impression that IPOB is divided is a wretched joke anticipated four years ago by the highest command of IPOB and something we knew would happen, so we are prepared for it. It did not come to us as a surprise when this morning DSS hurriedly issued their usual ‘Okwudili’ press statement to the media.
“If this fake Okwudildi does exist, how come there is no picture of him anywhere, he doesn’t address any gathering, he has no village, no parents, nothing. He is a mirage, a figment of the imagination of DSS and corrupt Igbo leadership. ‘Okwudili’ we know for sure exists in DSS’ computer hard drives and no place else.’’
